The Benevolent Elephant God-Ganesha

by the doc

Age Group: Adult



Overconfident certainties
Misfitting rebelliousness
Martyr like fanaticism
Ignorant Obstinacy
The Self manifests in variety

So do flora and fauna
Each predictably perfect
Without volition and astrology
With determining Destiny
or chanced choices

We await extinction
by whimsical forces..
A pandemic of
milk-drinking Ganeshas
Lambodars
Vighna Naashaks
Vinayaks
or any other name by which this lovely little boy of
Shiva and the Mother of the Universe...
may not repeat..
such spectacles.....
what a display
of colours, firecrackers, crowds
every year
he comes
he is worshipped
mercilessly
drowned...
remember?
feel like fasting....
break the fast
run the slow
contra
hydra
octa
penta
quarantined again? detention for not doing homework?
boozing or boxing again
what else...
like father, like son...
ever seen a picture of saints
meditating-contemplating-rehearsing-disciplining.....
introspection they call it...
easy-hard-difficult-impossible...
classify, and explain
with reason,
why.
